Coconut Milk and Healthy Fats

coconutMore than half the fats in coconuts are medium-chain triglycerides, which are more easily digested and therefore less likely to be stored as body fat. Coconut milk is a great lactose-free alternative to regular milk if you have to avoid dairy; it provide an excellent mix of fat, vitamin E and many other nutrients.

Coconut milk can also help stabilize blood sugar and combat inflammation. Avoid products that have added sugar and because coconut milk is high in fat; go for low-fat or light versions and limit yourself to a serving of ΒΌ cup, 60ml or 2 ounces.

I also like to use coconut spray on my cookie sheets instead of other oils. It is the small steps we make in our diets that keeps the extra pounds off.
